The 1999 doesn't have the red connector in the fuse box. That method isn't possible.
But I had the same problem and fixed it. This will sound weird, but trust me, it works.
1) A paint stir stick.
2) A coat hanger straightened out with one end bent into a small "j" hook.
3) A flashlight.
There is a loop of cable that goes from the engine compartment latch to an area underneath the left rear tail light. Pulling on this cable will open the engine compartment.
To open the engine compartment, you need to:
1) Use the paint stir stick to gently pry up the left rear tail light slightly. Don't pry it up too much and break anything: just pry it up a little so that a small gap opens up between the bottom of the tail light and the car body.
2) Shine the flashlight into the gap and look for a small, thin stainless steel cable. Use the "j" hook end of the coat hanger to pull the cable out from under the tail light.
3) Once the cable has been pulled out enough so that you can grasp it with your fingers, give it a sharp tug. This will pop open the latch to the engine compartment. Now you can jump the battery and start the car.

try getting another person to push hood down whilst you pull the release lever if this does not work locate cable behind puller handle and use pliers to pull just a little more then when opened be sure to adjust cable a little tighter

Reach over the drivers side front tire in wheel well. Reach around trim in upper wheel well to find a cable, running front to back, pull toward you and it should release the front hood. Previous owner showed me this emergency release in case battery goes dead and I have recently had to use it myself on my 1998 Boxster.
